Lintgen, Luxembourg 3 October, 2017 – www.rotarexfiretec.com -

Rotarex Firetec

, a business unit of Rotarex SA, announced that its pneumatic directional valves for

total flooding

fire protection

systems have received VdS and UL approval. These independent inspection, testing and certification institutions are respected and recognized worldwide for ensuring safety and trust in the field of

fire protection

.

Rotarex Firetec

is one of the world leaders in high-performance cylinder valves for fixed

fire extinguishing

systems. VdS and UL approvals for its pneumatic directional valves are a result of

Rotarex Firetec

's commitment to designing and manufacturing the highest quality products that perform as required over a long lifetime of service.

The pneumatic directional valve and actuator assembly isolate separate protection zones, allowing multiple zones to be protected by one cylinder rack. It permits discharge only in the

fire protection

zone where a fire occurs. Frédéric Begin,

Rotarex Firetec

Product Manager, commented: "This fulfills our vision of providing our customers with a complete range of components that can be assembled into an entire certified system. This enables them to achieve maximum productivity."

VdS and UL approval applies to

Rotarex Firetec

pneumatic directional valves that are used in

inert gas systems

. Plus, VDS also certified their use for CO2 and clean agent

fire suppression

systems. The valves consist of a stainless steel 2-way ball valve with steel housing and come with a choice of 5 diameters, from 1” to 3”. Users have the flexibility to define the installation position and flow direction.

Mr. Begin continued, "A wall mounted switching panel controls the directional valve position and sends a signal to open the valve in the zone with a fire. It is UL certified and available in multiple versions that offer protection from 2 to 15 zones."

Rotarex Firetec

's VdS and UL-approved pneumatic directional valves, plus its complete line of fixed fire system components and accessories, are available from Rotarex service centers and distributors worldwide.
